The beret change, we welcome. Better will the improving the supply, training the army — not only on paper but in reality, thieves from headquarters to jail”.

“We are not in UPA, we have the Ukrainian army. My grandfather doesn’t understand me he is alive and very even for Ukraine, but without nationalism. The army must be away from politics and welcome politics carries a mile,” says the Sergeant Vladimir.

Captain, tactical intelligence Yaroslav K. believes that the replacement of the greeting are logical, “but experiences are not. In our Armed forces not all heroes. Seen not just in 2014, as whole companies of ticking from the front end. Will be funny when the logistical and staff each other will greet you with “glory to Heroes””.
